Arthur Fear was born at Blaina, Monmouthshire, in 1902. He won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music where he studied under the famous maestro Thomas Meux , and it was after a students' performance of Falstaff that the critics hailed his singing as remarkable '. He was immediately engaged by the British National Opera Company and later by the Royal Opera Company at Covent Garden. He is recognised as one of our finest artists not only over here but also in America where he has made frequent appearances.

' The Negro'
Melville J. Herskovits
Professor Herskovits, of North-western University, Illinois, is to speak about the striking proportion of Negroes to Whites (over ten per cent. in the United States, one in three in the South), the difficulties they have encountered, and their contribution, to American civilisation.
They have influenced speech, for where did white children learn to speak but from their Negro ' Mammies ' ? From Negro songs came the elements that developed into jazz, while even the cuisine of the American South is influenced by African cooking traditions brought over by the Negro.
He points to two significant industrial developments of the present day: the rule adopted by the Committee of Industrial Organisation of no racial discrimination in its unions, and the formation of Tenant Farmers' unions in the South, whereby Whites and Negroes meet and discuss their common problems on terms of equality.
Benny Carter and his Band from the Palais de Danse,
A play by Jean-Jacques Bernard
Translated by John Leslie Frith
The action takes place in a little house in Burgundy on National 6, one of the French main roads
Michael, a retired civil servant, and his daughter Francine were dreamers both; he had dreamed for years of the house he was at last to buy near Chalon, just by a bend in 'National 6' - an artery taking traffic to the Riviera and beyond. He would watch the cars slowing at the bend - it was the next best thing to travel when you had no money. Francine, too, loved the road for the same and for a different reason. One day her Prince Charming would come this way, and stop, and knock at the door. She was fey, and sure of it. He came, his car having crashed: Robert, a young painter, with his father Antoine, a novelist. From then on the dream did not go the way of dreams.
